NaBloPoMo 09 – Hero David Corrigan

Well I’ve blogged each and every day for almost a year now.

I’ve decided to sign up for something known as National Blog Posting Month.

National Blog Posting Month is the epicenter of daily blogging! People who want to set the habit of blogging by doing it every day for a month, including weekends, can come here for moral support, inspiration, and the camaraderie that only marathon blogging can provide.

Here is a list of the 10 bloggers that have currently registered from Hawaii (there maybe more but they haven’t listed their location):

I know I won’t have any problem writing one post a month, my problem will be figuring out how this thing works!

I welcome the challenge and look forward to the chance at winning one of the great prizes available.

Here’s a look at the prize winners and prizes awarded in 2008.

This months theme: HEROES

So I’m trying to pick a “Hero” in this community and I do think there are quite a few of them.

My Hero I will elect, is Dave Corrigan from Big Island Video News.

I’ve known Dave for about 10 months now and the work he does for Big Island residents on his video blog has really changed politics here on this island.

It’s also motivated me to become a better blogger and use video of my own on my blog… however, my videos will never be as good as Mr. Corrigans.

A prime example of his most recent work would be the recent County Council Meeting that basically featured an “Illegal Coup” by our county council folks.

Dave was there to not only get it on film… he has put this online for everyone in the community to see what a “Farce” our County Council is.

Dave Corrigan… You are “My Hero”.

  1. YEAH Dave!!! MAHALO!!!

  2. I can’t picture myself as a “hero”, but it is nice of you to say.

    I do have to say one thing, though. There is a misconception going around that I was the one who videotaped the council meeting. That is not the case. Although I usually do film parts of these meetings, the so called “council coup” meeting video is courtesy the County of Hawaii. It is available to anyone who asks the clerk and drives to Hilo to pick it up. I only went through the 8 hours or so of footage and posted a good hour or so of highlites. The full presentation is available on Na Leo TV.

    I will always support your video gathering efforts, too. Keep up the good work!

    And for the record, I find myself most unworthy of such a designation.

    Have a good holiday!
